“In fact, her Spring 2020 bridal collection was one of her most intricate and challenging yet, consisting of gowns that required so much handwork and detailing that Wang said they’ll be a trip to reproduce.
She started with the idea of wanting the dresses to look completely different from every angle, whereas many designers only think about two vantage points: front and back.”
“Applying a more 360-degree approach to her gowns got Wang thinking about perfection. Most wedding gowns are too perfect, too precious; Wang’s, on the other hand, were purposefully asymmetrical. Many of them came with giant handmade roses pinned to one side while others had a big swath of tulle bunched at the hip, like a mini petticoat. “
“As models glided through the showroom, the dresses seemed to take on a new shape with every turn; the finale gown combined a beige tulle skirt with a structured ivory top that seemed to wrap around the body, ending with a surprise flash of skin in the back. “
“Making it all look natural and spontaneous was the trick, of course. The effect was of artfully throwing tulle on the body, but one hand-tucked gown in shades of blush and beige was hardly spontaneous; Wang said it used 1,000 stitches.”
